Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg has announced a partnership with RCA Records to release the soundtrack to his upcoming documentary Reincarnated.
The reggae and dancehall-influenced album, releasing in Spring 2013, will be executive produced by Diplo and the Major Lazer production team. The soundtrack is documented in the film, which was named an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. Reincarnated follows his trip to Jamaica and how the culture affected him.
“Major Lazer and I had a special opportunity to focus on recording Reincarnated from top-to-bottom with no interruptions in Jamaica,” said the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg. “From my time spent with the people and in the streets, these songs are based on peace, love, and the struggle. ‘Here Comes the King’ is a taste of what’s to come off that Reincarnated album and movie. It’s going to be an exciting 2013. Bless up.”
